Granit Xhaka wasted no time in delivering his own statement about joining Arsenal after the club announced his arrival.

Taking to Instagram, the midfielder said

Now it’s official. From next season on I will play for @Arsenal. I want to thank everyone at @borussia. Together we brought the club back to where it belongs, to the Champions League. I will always look back with pleasure to that time. But from now on I’m totally focused on playing at one of the biggest clubs in the world. It’s a big honour for me to wear the Arsenal jersey, as well as it has been an honour to play for Gladbach in the last four years. I hope we see each other again in the Champions League! ✊🙏🙌 #Xhaka #GX34 #PremierLeague #Thanks

Xhaka arrives in a deal said to be worth over €35m.

We are still on the hunt for details about his deal with Arsenal including wages and contract length, but initial reports claim it is a four-year deal and that he will be one of the highest earners at the club.

No surprises there.
